"Hello, There are so many hotels in Dublin.. In city centre there are 3 posh hotels. But those would be 4-5 strar and very expensive ones: The Westbury Hotel right in the main area and the heart of Dublin) You might not stay there, but you can also pop in the for cup of coffee (well its 6 eur, but environment is what you pay for. also very expensive, but gorgeous. see the photos-really cool place,maybe after your shopping or a walk on Grafton Street. Another is like nearly Irish symbol The Shelbourne Dublin, A Renaissance HotelAnd The Gresham Hotel, its on O'Connell Street Upper-the main street in Dublin. There are lovely hotels and not that expensive ones. Just a few to mention Jurys Inn Parnell Street Dublin not that far from Dublin centre, all is so close, price is cool, plus nice hotel ! Herbert Park Hotel Gibson hotel(this one is very handy if your'e going to 3Arena, since is just beside it. But it's a bit out of the city, and no attractions near by. Also, i would advice if you're driving-this hotels is super.Otherwise, not very good in terms of connecting to the city -only taxi. Dublin Skylon Hotel this hotel is not that long after a big renovation they had. It's not that far from city, very good prices, plus handy -lots of public transport, and on the way to airport (you'll get to the airport from this hotel in about 30 mins.well depends on the time as well.) They offer very good prices Another LOVELY hotel is Hilton Garden Inn Dublin Custom House if you're planning to visit the Kilmaingham Goal (historical place and must see, just don't forget to book tickets in advance for this one !!! ) So summarising-go for coffee or tea to city central hotels-theya re all awesome. But you can stay a bit further from city and save :) Skylon, Juryss IN -would be really good choice :) Enjoy your TRIP !!!!" See More
